My wife has been...

My wife has been having lower back pain and also pain around the hips that also sometimes travels down to the legs. She said that it feels like it is coming from deep inside her. She has had a paragard iud installed now for 6 months. Could the pain be linked to the IUD. The Urgent Care Nurse Practitioner said that the x-ray showed the IUD still in the proper place and said that they did not see anything wrong with her through the blood work.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

No recent injuries, but sitting seems to make the pain worse

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Just the Paragard IUD for 6 months now. I have noticed that she has a high salt intake in her food.

ok

It is unlikely that her IUD is causing her symptoms. IUDs do not cause back pain.

It sounds like a nerve problem.

I would recommend getting an MRI of the lumbar spine to further evaluate her anatomy including bones, nerves, and muscles.

She has had an x-ray and they did not see anything abnormal on it. Would the MRI be able to tell more?

Yes, an MRI will give your much much more information.

Nerve pain radiates just like you are describing.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
